TEMPE, Ariz. — Arizona State didn't generate too much excitement with its opening win over Northern Arizona, an overmatched school from the Football Championship Subdivision.

Last weekend's win over Illinois wasn't exactly highly regarded either since the Illini played without their starting quarterback.

Say what you will about their opponents, one thing's for certain: the Sun Devils are playing well.

Disciplined, nearly unstoppable on offense and brimming with confidence, Arizona State has opened the Todd Graham era with two convincing wins.

The Sun Devils have committed five penalties in two games — two by their starters — rank third in passing efficiency and are seventh nationally in scoring at 54 points per game.

Arizona State will play its first road game of the season on Saturday at Missouri.
